The seasonal celebration of Christmas has been the inspiration for so many great musical masterpieces, and brass instruments are a vital part of this festive musical fabric.
In this concert Septura focus on some of the highlights of the rich Christmas canon – including Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, Handel’s Messiah and Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker. Where years of repetition have dulled the impact of these wonderful works Septura — described by BBC Music Magazine as ‘dazzlingly polished’ — illuminate them afresh, casting them in a brand new light through the unique and uplifting sound of the brass septet.
Septura are joined on stage by broadcaster, journalist, novelist and violinist Clemency Burton-Hill, who will be narrating the story of the Nutcracker.
